The Sunday Circle is the weekly check-in where I ask the creative-types who follow this blog to weigh in about their goals, inspirations, and challenges for the coming week. The logic behind it can be found here. Want to be involved? It’s easy – just answer three questions in the comments or on your own blog (with a link in the comments here, so that everyone can find them).
After that, throw some thoughts around about other people’s projects, ask questions if you’re so inclined. Be supportive above all.
Then show up again next Sunday when the circle updates next, letting us know how you did on your weekly project and what you’ve got coming down the pipe in the coming week (if you’d like to part of the circle, without subscribing to the rest of the blog, you can sign-up for reminders via email here).
What am I working on this week?
I’m on the final 2,000 words of my PhD chapter, with three sections left to write. One is an overview of the way verisimultude shapes the way we interpret genre, one is the way in which genres shape reading communities, and one is looking at how the way series works are being published and read has shifted the poetics of series works. It’s a lot to fit into the space, but that’s better than having not enough.
What’s inspiring me this week?
The Good Place. I resisted watching this a lot over the past month because so much is made about “the big twist,” but my partner picked it after we ran out of The Unbreakable Schmidt and it’s been outstanding. I adore the way it sneaks a bunch of legit philosophy into the narrative, and there’s just some incredible performances from the cast.
What action do I need to take?
I really need to go through my chapter draft and double-check all the referencing is correct, and the bibliography is properly put together.
